Overview

Not your traditional Wu Tang affiliate, Remedy showcases exactly why RZA and company went out of their way to hook up with a white Jewish rapper. First of all, Remedy isn't just a rapper; he's also an equally skilled producer, crafting nearly every beat on this album. Secondly, he doesn't rely on the extended Wu family to carry his album; there are actually a minimum of guest rappers here, giving Remedy plenty of time to explore a number of viable topics. Finally, this guy seems to really instill a lot of emotion into his music; both his rhymes and his beats are obviously labored, and his delivery is equally passionate. So, in short, Genuine Article has the makings of a great debut album. This guy is a real talent and not a brand extension like many of the other Wu Tang affiliates. Sometimes his lyrical agendas can get a little heavy-handed but, for the most part, there's not a lot to complain about here; this is how a debut rap album should sound.
